Wacky Watercooler October Blog Hop

Finally made time to join this wonderful blog hop again, the Wacky Watercooler!

Our theme is fall, of course!

I created a nice little array of items.

The first is a simple, elegant card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Seasons, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Gold Foil, Thanksgiving card

Love these colors together! Very elegant and classy!

The third is a wonderful interactive card –

libbystamps, stampin up, slider card, Kraft Rope Trim, Layering Ovals Framelits, Halloween Night Specialty DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Cookie Cutter Halloween

Pull up on the viewable area to see this –

…and did you see that the adorable main focal image moved up to?

Lastly, I always make some sort of Gratitude Journal for myself and as a Card Buffet item around this time. Here is the one for this year –

libbystamps, stampin up, Seasonal Frame Thinlits, Copper Foil, Kraft Tag A Bag Gift Bags, Vintage Leaves, Leaflets Framelits, Season Frame Thinlits

Inside it has 10 sheets of paper to notate what you are ‘grateful’ for. This is one of our Tag A Bag Gift Bags folded over and decorated.

I would love to read what you think about my Blog Hop projects before moving on to the next blog! And, if you attend my Card Buffet this weekend, you may or may not see these projects again, just sayin’!

Thursday already! September is almost over. Yikes! One last Create with Connie and Mary for the month!

This week, we have a nice color challenge –

ccmc426

Great colors, don’t you agree?

I wasn’t really sure what direction I wanted to go with these. I have been trying to incorporate more stamping in my cards and I did just that with this design –

libbystamps, stampin up, Vintage Leaves, Suite Seasons, Layering Ovals Framelits, CCMC426, fall

Of course, I also have fall on the brain too!

I stamped the leaved in a row randomly. I decided a basic card layout would work best.

I added the sentiment from Thoughtful Branches, although these leaves are from the set, Vintage Leaves, the work quite well together!

And, as an added bonus, this could be given to a guy as well! A great masculine card!

I’d love for you to leave me a comment. Then, go see what the other Design Team members created at Create with Connie and Mary. Perhaps you’d like to try out our challenge this week? You should! It’s open for a week!

Falling for the Nachos

It’s Friday! What a busy, busy week!

I made this card the other day when I saw the Nacho Average Challenges newest color challenge –

Love these colors!!!! So great to work with!

Of course, I’ve sort of gotten in a Fall/Halloween mode of card marking. It slightly influenced the creation of this card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Vintage Leaves, Labeler Alphabet, Fine-Tip Glue Pen, Fall Card, NAC179

Isn’t this just fun!?!?

libbystamps, stampin up, Vintage Leaves, Labeler Alphabet, Fine-Tip Glue Pen, Fall Card, NAC179

I LOVE it!!! These colors were just perfect for this leaf card. And, these letters – my new FAV!!!! They really are a must have!

I like how a card like this just comes together seamlessly! I am glad I found the time to post this. I think it suites the challenge well! Don’t you?

Vintage Leaves Birthday

Taking a moment out to share a card from the last Buffet.

We always look to make a masculine card that works. I created this and think it works quite well –

libbystamps, Stampin' Up, masculine card, Card Buffet, Happy Birthday Everyone, Vintage Leaves, Leaflets Framelits, Vintage Leaves Bundle,

Don’t you agree? It was a popular choice too. Simple, with a little color and even some twine! It’s nice to be able to sneak that sort of stuff in a guy card. Although, this could go either way!

I used the new Archival ink here. Not bad. It does take a little longer to dry, fyi.

Go make a card and make someones day!
